Who Wins The Most

Postby esm » Sat Jan 31, 2004 8:45 pm

I don't see how a team can win without making changes. Players blow hot and cold. The manager who can spot a Loaiza, Willis, or Podsednik first has a big advantage.

Of course if a manager is desperately chasing the hot player he's apt to unload better talent than he is getting.

With pitching, a good team can be bested in the pitching category by someone who swaps for the next day's starters. He may lose ERA & WHIP, but has a good shot at scoring more Ws & Ks.

Last year I was chasing a team with 5 Red Sox hitters. Finally, I added David Ortiz for those weeks I played him H2H and neutralized him. Also, the Red Sox cooled off late in the season, that helped too.

This year I'm in a 22-man roster league which will make adding & dropping more pricey.

I made the most moves and trades and finished 5th.

I'd like to say that Griffey was only 10% of the problem.
My trades backfired and just like you say I scrambled the rest of the year trying to put a band-aid on everything!

I would guess the team that moves the most. The reason being that they are probably talking and paying more attention than others.

What's with all this luck talk? I don't believe anyone wins in fantasy by luck, or loses by luck. You picked em, you live with em, and you find another way to win if you have too.

the team that wins the most is the one with the most points or head to head wins at the end of the season

Its hard to win with luck. It is much easier to lose with Bad luck. Bad luck can be overcome, but even the best fantasy player will find it very very difficult if 4 of the first 5 draft picks go down with season ending INJ.

Although I am winning a Hockey league where 3 of my first 5 picks have been INJ most of the year ( i think I have got 25 out of a possible 170 games out of the them so far)

Bottom line: Making a plethora of moves for the sake of change because one has a lousy team won't help. Picking up players who are playing better than expected (Loaiza, Huff, Javy, etc.) can.

It all depends on the quality of the moves made.
